Two corrections deputies and a sergeant were assaulted at the Snohomish County Jail in Everett by an inmate early Wednesday morning.
The attack was reported around 1 a.m. by a deputy working in the jail's maximum security area, says The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
The inmate, a 28-year-old male, was out of his cell for free-time when he reportedly assaulted the deputy.
The deputy said he attempted to restrain the inmate as other staff arrived. In the struggle, another deputy and a sergeant were injured.
The inmate was restrained and medically evaluated and will remain in the Snohomish County Jail.
Lake Stevens Police Department had booked the man into jail on March 5 for resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, 3rd-degree assault on a police officer, and burglary charges.
All three corrections employees were treated and released from a nearby hospital. Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said two deputies will need some recovery time; the extent of their injuries were unknown.
The incident is being investigated by Snohomish County sheriff's deputies.
